meeting of senators john mccain and president obama. this was held at belmont university in tennessee. the questions came from undecided voters from the nashville area. tom brokaw was allowed to include questions submitted on- line. this is almost two hours. >> good evening from belmont university in nashville, tennessee. i'm tom brokaw of nbc news. and welcome to this second presidential debate, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's debate is the only one with a townhall format. the gallup organization chose 80 uncommitted voters from the nashville area to be here with us tonight. and earlier today, each of them gave me a copy of their question for the candidates. from all of these questions -- and from tens of thousands submitted online -- i have selected a long list of excellent questions on domestic and foreign policy. neither the commission nor the candidates have seen the questions. and although we won't be able to get to all of them tonight, we should have a wide-ranging discussion one month before the election. each candidate will have two minutes to r
minute. >> there are two paths we can take this in country. senator tester and president obama have taken one path. he's voted with president obama 95% of the time. what have that given us, it's given us healthcare reform. it did not reform health care. it added more people to a failed system. it gave us the failed stimulus. the only shovel ready project really funded in a large sort of way was adding additional trillion dollars debt on our middle class. it also gave us not necessarily an energy policy but an environmental policy. you don't have to look very far down the veto to see the closing plant. it will cost us 35 jobs. it's going to cost the city of billings over $10 million a year in income in the surrounding area. it is going to add as much as 25% to our utility bills. that is the equivalent of shutting off the electricity to 100,000 homes. that's entire city of billings. economics kind of we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. had a broken h
. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on suburban women in our cnn p
the middle class even more. during the 2008 debates, senator obama assured us he fully understood our problems and he had the right solutions. he promised to make health care more affordable. president obama promise to get our spending under control by cutting the deficit in half. he was so confident that shortly after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manu
from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward. >> thank you very much. now tom to your question for representative rehberg. >> yes representative rehberg. you have criticized american recovery and reinvestment act, our also cut the ribbon on a road project that used stimulus. in february 2009, you credited yourself for securing $42.5 million for montana project and that year consolidated appropriation bill, that's according to your website. the very next day, you cried the $410 billion for wasteful spending. you have mostly voted the party line and accused your opponent of votin
and obama narrows in virginia, so does that senate race. back to you. >> big night out there. steve handelsman, thanks so much. >>> baker is campaigning for question 7 in maryland. it would expand gambling in the state. and baker has a message for people who think it's a bad bill. during a taping of viewpoint this morning, baker said the initiative would create 12,000 jobs in the state and 6,000 jobs in the county and raise much-needed revenue. baker is also behind the push to build a new casino at national harbor. he responded to critics' concerns. >> what do you say to your constituents who have a moral dilemma with this, in terms of addiction, concerns about crime and things of that nature? >> what i say to folks is, because maryland's already passed a gaming bill, we are currently -- it's legal to gamble in maryland. there are five sites they do it. and right now, people from prince george's county are going to other sites. the problem is, those issues that are very real come back to prince george's county without the revenues to deal with it. what we want to makeure is we can b
barack obama had the house, the senate and himself one party rule. if themed them -- they wanted to get things done like trying to figure out the mythical tax for shipping jobs overseas, they should have done it then. but the fact is, they didn't pass a budget then when they had complete control and they're not passing one now. guest: , look the republicans had a meeting after the inauguration where they made a clear decision to block anything he tried to do at any cost. that's been evidenced by their entire voting record, voting no down the line as guy pointed out. and the reason a budget can't get passed because house republicans will not pass a reasonable budget. they pass a budget with bunch of special interest and balloons the deficit. that's not acceptable and that's not what the voters want. that's why we need to kick the tea party out of congress. when we do that, we can finally get a reasonable budget passed. guest: i'm glad we're going to conspiracy theories on secret meetings. let's focus on the fact that the senate has not passed a budget. we can have every excuse in the b
use today say, walk softly, talk softly but carry a big stick. senator obama likes to talk loudly. >> senator mccain, this is the guy who sang bomb, bomb, bomb iran. who called for the annihilation of north korea. >> all right. it's a delicate line these candidates will have to walk next week with a live studio audience right near them. >> sure. it just changes the vibe completely because you know and i know that they don't have any problem kind of challenging you, challenging a reporter, somebody that they're familiar with. they can be really tough on you and say, hey, that's not true. they don't have a problem shouting you down. but if you have a bunch of undecided voters watching you, there's a couple things. first of all, you can't be too hot. you can't be too aggressive because that vibe is bad in the room. second of all, all the theatrics of it for them. which is the you have to talk to them and you have to seem like you're relating to them. so i think it adds a whole other level of performance if you will to what they're saying. it's also very hard to evade a question that
the republicans where as they have bought obama at every turn. going back to the senate, he said he was going to plan to make sure he was a one-term president. they will not get my vote in this case. >> thank you. juanita is watching us from florida. >> i would like to first say the moderator did phenomenal job. however, i would like to say this campaign has just been sickening to me. you want to deal with issues and not with persons -- personhood. you do not want to attack anybody poesy person had. -- anybody's personhood it. listening to people calling in and of making a rude and disrespectful comments about the candidates that were the vice president and mr. paul ryan, making negative comments about them. i just think that -- did we say we are in strong the country, but let me tell you what makes you week. when you can be rude and disrespectful to the authorities of this country. everybody talks about their relievers -- they want to do the right thing. nobody is really doing the right thing. we are not a respectful country. there is so much rudeness. until we corrected that issue in this c
back in a 2008. about 61% of those under the age of 30 supporting senator obama in 2008. only 39 percent for john mccain. it increased under post- graduate. a little different among high- school graduates, because the president getting only 47 percent, john mccain with 53 percent. what will we see in 2012? guest: keitel brought up the party line that mitt romney is advocating for. brought up the party line. on the issue of turnout to vote. 66% voted for obama. two or three weeks ago there was a poll released, and in the poll, 18-29 year old age bracket is 45% 4 mitt romney. the first time a republican has broken the 40 ce% bracket for youth. governor romney has the experience to create jobs. the 18-29 year olds are either coming nearing graduation and wanting jobs or are suffering in the obama economy. i think you will see a turnaround -- turnout in the polls and will favor for mitt romney. host: we have been focusing on key sectors of the electorate. we will get back to your calls in just a moment. what shape your ideology? why are you a democrat and why you support president ob
house senate and president and barack obama's first term. that's because it would require them to report to the government the women they have on their payroll, the men have on that there'll come how much they pay both groups. and that's an attempt of a government should try to equalize pay between groups of women and groups of men. rather than as the law holds right now, men and women in comparable jobs in the same job. so what they're trying to do is have equal pay for equal work, not equal pay for equal work, which is two very different things. there's no reason why groups of women and groups of men in the same firm should be paid the same if they have radically different jobs. look at exxon, for example, that is a group of men and oil drilling activities. it's a dirty dangerous job. you could not get me to do. you have to pay people a lot to risked their lives doing that kind of work. exxon has a group of women in communications, assistant jobs, publications. there's no reason these two groups should be necessarily paid the same. but the paycheck benefit would be moving toward requir
or the opposite. >> it's not fair because barack obama-- this is a man who hasn't pressed the democrat senate to put forth a budget. >> we znt had a budget. >> so it's absurd to say that. do i believe that mitt romney needs to off specifics? i do. that's what will inspire confidence in voters. i think the more information they have with respect to education, with respect to the economy and respect to how, how you're going to implement the changes i think the better, but for barack obama who hasn't offered any specifics at all is a ridiculous claim. >> i don't think that's necessarily true, for americans making $250,000 or less and he had a fair and balanced proechd. >> he's not cutting taxes, he's raising via obamacare and a ton of taxes on the middle class. >> we neat fact checks and nonpartisan, says that mitt romney's numbers are not true and if they're making that-- >> cbo said what about obamacare, it's going to raise taxes on the middle class. you've got conflicting statements. >> 30 days left. can you keep the passion going? >> i can. >> and great to see you this morning. >> thank you.

's not going to hurt the economy. let me bring in somebody you know, senator john king. john, you watched, and you commented on the presidential debate. neither mitt romney nor president obama even mention the fiscal cliff. they talked a lot about the economy, they talked a lot about jobs. if i were a voter, i would be demanding an answer right now on exactly how anyone who wants any elective office in washington plans to prevent this insanity. >> it sort of came up once when jim lehrer reminded them and said, raise your hand if you'll take a deal for one dollar in tax increases you'll take $10 in spending cuts. neither one of them wanted to take that deal. neither wants to approach this because no one wants to say if i cut a real deal, i will cut the programs you love. governor romney knows the revenue question will be back on the table in some form. senator nunn has been gone from the town for a while and he's probably grateful for that. he used to serve in what they call the world's most deliberative body. not so much anymore. >>> coming up, winston churchill once said, you can always
the president's signature. the senate's consent and the house. the republican house has nothing to do with it. i believe that obama's second term and lame duck strategy will be able to create global gloverance and impose through treaty the gun controls and tax increases that he cannot get through a republican house. >> steve: check it out. here come the black helicopters bound to be a new york times best seller. thank you very much. congratulations . >> brian: three minutes before the top of the hour. want to buy a gun or ammo? get ready to shell out a violence tax? is that legal. >> steve: they are famous for smashing guitars, but did you know the who nearly called themselves -- i am not going to tell you, i am going to let pete townsend tell you here on "fox and friends". ♪ ♪ ♪ >> steve: the shot of the moment. media. of all of the photos they took of mitt romney they show this one. he was preparing to pose with the students in fairfield elementary . turns out that little girl was making that face because she was surprised he was sitting down directly in front of her. the new york times
